Aaron Jones loses necklace with father's ashes inside during Packers touchdown
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Aaron Jones had a big night at Lambeau Field Monday night, Sept. 20, as the Green Bay Packers defeated the Detroit Lions in a Midwest matchup, 35-17.
Jones scored not one but FOUR touchdowns for the Pack. Following the game, he told reporters he lost a necklace containing his late father's ashes. The necklace apparently fell off during one if his touchdown runs.

Jones said if he lost the chain anywhere his father would want it to be in a moment like that.
"He'd be happy," Jones said. "If you lose it anywhere, lose it in the end zone."
Tuesday morning, Jones confirmed on 97.3 FM The Game the necklace was found.
An awesome ending after an awesome night.
"I think he'd be very proud of me...," Jones said. "This is only the beginning."
